Newell tries to undo the damage of his testimony by sending this nice DOJ lawyer-crafted letter "explaining" what he couldn't under oath.

How convenient. Issa, just call him back and have him swear under oath all the words in this CYOA letter.

Enough bullshit in that communique to keep the grass in Central Park green for at least a decade.

"To be clear, the main objective of the Fast and Furious investigation was to find a way to ELIMINATE the flow of firearms to Mexico by this criminal organization."

Now comes Bill Newell with a load of Jesuitical casuistry, attempting to justify his role in Fast and Furious.

Assuming he understand the difference between interdicting arms trafficking and ELIMINATING its existence, facilitating the delivery of guns to a Mexican drug cartel is wholly at odds with the rationale for ATF's existence, viz., upholding the nation's laws.

The question before us is whether Newell was aware that he was breaking those laws when he "walked" guns. If the answer is "Yes" his role in Fast and furious was done with malice aforethought and he should be indicted and prosecuted.

Notice to Bill Ne'r-do-well: When you're in a hole, stop digging.

He should have rolled when he had the chance.

Now the best thing for him is to stay away from Ft. Marcy Park...and never ride in the passenger seat.

"no sir we were not breaking the law,

It was a new investigative process.

those lying whistleblowers didn't say a word while this was going on.

We have to make omelets gut the 2nd ammend) with something, in this case some meskins oops, about that BP guy and the ICE guys sorry we weren't looking that day."

I make at least three perjury counts and that's not counting the FACT that $70K US taxpayer dollars were spent shipping guns to Mexico. Can we please see the end user certs on each weapon that would be from State, and the Memorandum of Understanding from the Mexicans?

Thanks, for nothing Newell.
